Disney Net exec moves to TV

Walt Disney says it has appointed the former chairman of the Walt Disney Internet Group to be the president of its ABC TV network. The company said Steven Bornstein is replacing Robert Callahan, who is leaving--for personal reasons that require him to be based on the East Coast--but will remain at ABC through September to assist in the transition. The change follows Disney's reinvention of its troubled Go.com Web portal as it folds its Internet efforts back into core TV businesses. Bornstein, who had served as chairman of the Internet unit since September 1999, will oversee the ABC TV network, ABC's 10 TV stations, and Buena Vista Television, a provider of syndicated TV programming. Bornstein has held numerous executive positions at Disney divisions, including president of ABC, chief executive of ESPN, vice president of Capital Cities/ABC, and president of ABC Sports.
